The Amazing Spider-Man 3


Why on Earth are we already reporting on The Amazing Spider-Man 3 when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 isn’t even finished being made? It’s a long story, one that starts with Monday’s news that Sony is so happy to have the rights to the Spider-Man property in their portfolio, they’ve already scheduled release dates for ASM 3 and 4, even before ASM 2 can be completed and released. For fans of Marc Webb and the principal cast he’s put together for this new Spidey franchise, Sony’s faith and commitment to new films has to be seen as a good thing, but, unfortunately, planning for two more movies has forced some things to be shuffled around, and all of that shuffling doesn’t come without at least one casualty. From the looks of things, said casualty is going to be Shailene Woodley’s portrayal of Mary Jane Watson, which we were supposed to be seeing in ASM 2.



Seeing as Spider-Man is definitely one of the top five most recognizable superheroes on the planet, and superheroes have been pretty much the most profitable thing you can make movies about over the last decade or so, it makes sense that Sony wouldn’t want to give up the rights to making Spider-Man movies and have them revert back to Disney/Marvel Studios. A new press release from the studio [via /Film] reveals just how enthusiastic they are about making sure that the further adventures of the web head stay under their control. Even though they only have to keep making Spider-Man movies every few years to keep control of the property, which currently puts them in a very safe position seeing as they’re deep into production on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 right now, they’ve decided to take steps to ensure that Spidey won’t be going back to his Marvel roots at least up through 2018.
